to develop our workforce is to continue to transform education in our state. the reforms we enacted over the past two years saved school districts hundreds of millions of dollars and allowed each district to hire based on merit and pay based on performance. we can put the best and the brightest in our classrooms -- and we can pay them to stay there. we finally have a way to recognize our exceptional teachers and reward them for the good work they do with our children. going forward, our educational efforts must be focused on performance. during the past year, state superintendent evers and i put together a diverse group of stakeholders from around wisconsin -- teachers, parents, school board members, taxpayers, business leaders, and others -- to talk about school and school district accountability. after a lengthy process, the first report card evaluating each school in the state was released at the start of the school year. as many of you know, tonette and i still have a son at wauwatosa east high school. like many parents, we looked at the score for alex's school. in fact, our dis

invest in our education system. from before they enter kindergarten to the time they leave higher education, we must prepare them to succeed in a 21st century economy. and if we are sincere in our concern for the next generation, how we deal with one another matters, not only during this session but also throughout the campaigns that bring us to these positions of public trust. every day, our kids watch what we do and learn from our example. members of the 63rd legislature, what i ask of you tonight is simple and straightforward: first, be responsible with our budget, because i won't allow you to spend more than we take in or make cuts that undermine our long-term stability. second, join me in focusing on creating jobs, investing in education, and making government more effective, and lastly, act in a manner that we're not ashamed to have our children watching, because they are. i am taking these principles to heart, and we've hit the ground running to create better jobs, better schools and a more effective government. a company recently came to the state of montana and said they'
